1. 1 out of 10
2. might handle all-mountain
3. about as stable as any other jib-specific deck
4. about durable as any other jib-specific deck

I have a Ride Kink 147 from 2008, and a 152 from 2009.

here is my answers for your questions:

Flex: 2 out of 10

All Mountain: Its better for handrails, small park jumps and jibbing mainly. I've used it in whistler all over without issues, but the edgehold isn't responsive because of the flex, so it takes more work to ride fast.

Stability: I would say its great for going slower, hitting rails, and small jumps. It can get unstable at high speeds, so you better have strong legs to hold your edge in a carve.

Durability: If your hitting any street rails, the base gets thrashed fast, the edges are strong, but the tips can chip and dent easy as they are very thin. The base is also kind of slow as its extruded, which is fine for rails and park riding on small to medium features.

I think the Agenda would be more of an all round board than the kink, as the kink is more for strick park and handrail riding.

Also if your on a budget, check out discounts on last years boards, something more suited to all mountain. You can save a lot this way!
